If you've ever owned a car, chances are you've tried to save a little money by ignoring the occasional odd noise or broken bit rather than gambling on a mechanic's visit. But when the only way to control your car involves locking a pair of pliers on the spindle where your steering wheel once was, maybe it's time to either visit the garage or find another way around.

The photo comes from Adelaide, Australia, where police pulled over a 38-year-old man "driving" an older Holden Commodore following an alleged hit-and-run accident. It wasn't much of a chase, since the white sedan had two flat tires, and the driver was later found to have no insurance or driver's license — which hadn't harmed his ability to get methamphetamine and marijuana, and which police charged him with using before climbing behind the Vise-Grip.

Am I the only one wondering what happened to the steering wheel? Did someone steal it, did it break? How do you break a steering wheel?

In the town I live in, a steering wheel can actually be stolen...
